Black-Owned Fintech Kinly Partners With Data Enhancement Platform MX

Kinly has announced a new partnership with data aggregation platform MX, a financial data aggregation tool, to help the company build and enhance its custom-built financial tools.

The Atlanta-based financial tech company, Kinly, is dedicated to helping Black Americans build generational wealth. The platform offers members a range of benefits, including a Visa debit card and early wage access. In addition, it gives members access to financial education to help them improve their economic outcomes.

The partnership with MX will see the platform introduce a range of embeddable user interfaces to help developers securely connect MX-powered financial data to their current products. This feature will help Kinly verify data when opening accounts, moving money, and underwriting.

“Working closely with Kinly to help provide data enhancement and personalized financial advice for the Black community aligns perfectly with our mission to empower the world to be financially strong,” said Brett Allred, MX Chief Product Officer.

“We’re big fans of Kinly and the underrepresented community it serves and looks forward to its continued growth and ongoing partnership into the future.”

MX, co-founded by Brandon Dewitt and Ryan Caldwell in 2010, introduces innovative ways for people to connect with their financial data. The platform, which has grown to become the leader in modern connectivity, uses customer-centric banking relationships to deliver next-generation bank applications and solutions.

The new features of Kinly’s platform will give customers a 360-degree view of their finances, with personalized and intelligent money experiences that will help better their user experience.
